The National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES) series provides information on health expenditures by or on behalf of families and individuals, the financing of these expenditures, and each person's use of services. Research File 40R includes data from several components of the NMES. These data were previously scheduled for release as NMES Research Files 27R, 33R, 38R, and 39R and have now been consolidated into a single collection, File 40R. Eight data files are contained in this collection. Parts 1-3 provide residence history and hospital inpatient stay data from the Institutional Population Component (IPC) (previously scheduled for release as NMES Research File 27R). Parts 4-5 cover all health insurance plans offered by potential employment-related sources (i.e., held plans and optional plans) from the Health Insurance Plans Survey (HIPS) (previously scheduled for release as NMES Research File 33R). Part 4 also includes update information on health insurance premium amounts for all policyholders of insurance from employment-related sources (previously scheduled for release as NMES Public Use Tape 15U, these data replace the premium variables originally released on NMES Public Use Tape 15, NATIONAL MEDICAL EXPENDITURE SURVEY, 1987: POLICYHOLDERS OF PRIVATE INSURANCE: PREMIUMS, PAYMENT SOURCES, AND TYPES AND SOURCE OF COVERAGE [PUBLIC USE TAPE 15] [ICPSR 9901]). Parts 6-7 consist of summarized benefits data and actuarial values from the HIPS for linked policyholders and dependents (previously scheduled for release as NMES Research File 38R). Part 8 contains death certificate data for persons in the NMES Household Survey (HS), the IPC, and the NMES Survey of American Indians and Alaska Natives Component (SAIAN) (previously scheduled for release as NMES Research File 39R).
